Olive Mess - Gramercy

"Olive Mess is a band from Latvia (ex-USSR) that plays a very original progressive music. The line-up features guitar ( electric, classic, baroque ), bass, keyboards, drums, occasional sax, and a superb soprano female singer. Olive Mess was founded by Denis Arsenin (bass), Alexey Syomin (guitar) and Edgar Kempish (drums) in November 1998. For 2 years the band acted as a trio and was influenced at that time by famous progressive acts like Gentle Giant, Univers Zero and King Crimson. The name of the band was taken in honour of French composer Olivier Messian (20th century). In 2001 ex-Biosfera keyboard player Lilia Voronova joined the band. For the Gramercy album session recordings Ilze Paegle (soprano vocalist ) was invited. Ilze currently studies singing at the Latvian Academy of Music. So far, she has sung music ranging from Hildegard von Bingen (11th century) to contemporary composers, but specializing into Renaissance and Baroque periods. She participated into several opera productions...and with various other bands she has given concerts in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, U.K., Italy, Belgium, Germany and Australia. Gramercy" is an ambitious concept album based on various French medieval events. 5 very long tracks ( 63 minutes ) that form an electrical and modern opera, influenced as well by French classical composers like LULLY or Olivier Messian and by King Crimson when the music is at its electric peak. A recording at the crossroads between progressive - in the truest sense of the word - and RIO. Highly original and very well worth investigating for the curious ears....."
